Sumeet Mittal, MD, is a board-certified general surgeon and Surgical Director of the Esophageal and Foregut Program at Norton Thoracic Institute, St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center.
Dr. Mittal is an expert in many esophageal diseases, and his research interests include diseases of the esophagus and the foregut. He is a member of the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons, the Society of Laparoscopic and Endoscopic Surgeons, and the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy.
After earning his medical degree from the All Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi, India, he completed his residency at Creighton University. Dr. Mittal also did a fellowship in thoracic and foregut surgery at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.

“Gastroesophageal reflux disease—or GERD—may well be the epidemic of our time, with millions of undiagnosed cases. This condition is not to be ignored, as it can lead to esophageal cancer and may contribute to lung disease,” Dr. Mittal says. “The most common treatment of GERD only addresses its symptoms and not the underlying issue. At Norton Thoracic Institute, we treat the symptoms and the root of the problem to improve long-term outcomes for patients with this condition.”
